  • 1 lb good quality fettucini pasta
  • 1/4 c. (1/2 cube) butter
  • 4 generous teaspoons minced garlic (bottled with water and phosphoric acid)
  • 2 c. chicken broth
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 1/2 lb. cooked chicken pieces
  • 2 c. milk
  • 3/4 c. Ultra Gel
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese, room temperature, cut into cubes
  • 1 c. shredded fresh Parmesan cheese (in refrigerated section)
  • 1 c. heavy whipping cream


  • Cook pasta according to package directions, salting the water liberally. Be careful not to overcook--if the pasta absorbs too much water, the pan will be too full! And the pasta will be soggy.
  • While the pasta is cooking:
  • Melt the butter--add the garlic and saute until fragrant.
  • Add the chicken broth and water
  • Add the chicken and allow to simmer for ten minutes. Remove chicken and reserve
  • Add milk to broth, then stir in Ultra Gel gradually with a wire whisk.
  • Add cream cheese and cook slowly until melted.
  • Add Parmesan cheese and stir until melted, then stir in cream.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper if desired. Be careful about adding more salt, as the pasta will be salted.
  • Layer ingredients in 9 x 13" glass casserole dish or commercial foil pan, starting with a little sauce, then 1/2 pasta, then 1/2 chicken, then 1/2 of remaining sauce, remaining pasta, remaining chicken and finishing with sauce
  • Cover with foil if using a 9x13" pan or foil lid if you're using a foil pan and seal tightly.
  • If serving immediately, bake at 325 for 1 hour. If cooking later, refrigerate, then cook slowly at 300-325 degrees for about 2 hours. Be careful about using a higher heat as the sauce can easily scorch.
  • NOTE: If you use a foil pan you might want to bake on a cookie sheet for easier handling.
